Default Body panel transplant & maybe a PS

I can't help but wonder if my 94 Bonneville chassis can take a 2000+ Bonneville rear, like the bumper, lights, trunk lid, and perhaps redone quarter panels. I'm out of a digital camera because I lost my card reader, but I'm looking for it between tasks. If I can get the angles you PSers request, would someone shove the aforementioned rear on my 94 Bonneville? I think this is what would look best with a 70'* Charger front.

The 70'* Charger front was inspired by a terrifying set of things including my tainted fiberglass bumper, loose fog lamps (stock more so than the aftermarket), and broken headlight chassis. I have since used drywall screws to tighten the headlight assembly to the car, but it'* not as angle-able as before. If I could get some 70'* Charger fenders, paint them accordingly, and let them compliment a hood cut from the sides to fit the width if necessary, ditto on the bumper, I'd enjoy that. I imagine there'd be much more room for radiators, pedestrianist car horns, brighter lights, and not to mention the increased airflow.

The happy, bubbly rear of my car, including the cracked bumper, peeling tail lights, and slightly scathed clearcoat on the top of the trunk lid could merrily be replaced by a newer set of body parts that I believe could more pleasingly go along with the aggressive, intimidating front. I'm not saying that Bonnevilles are strange-looking or anything like that. In fact, I very much like every single Bonnie body style including the 80'* because they're just so freaking awesome. The lines are cool, there'* room but curves exist sometimes, etc. However, I have this forum'* Your Ride section and my friends' Bonnevilles to enjoy should I really need to view stock again. I need a Charger front and a different rear end, side panels tbd, because I might as well, and I'm even more interested in the potential PS work.

Well, I'm more so interested in photoshopping the rear end to a newer Bonneville. I got this idea a while ago because 1337ssei told me that I could take the front fenders, hood, the two bumpers, the trunk lid, and the rear lights from a 96-99 Bonneville and do a direct swap with no body modification. Did the Bonneville chassis change so dramatically that this is not possible with the 00+ cars?

Ah, well. Since I've already had the front photoshopped, I think this topic is pretty much out. Thanks, though.
